In this course, photographer and scanning expert Taz Tally describes how to use the LaserSoft Imaging SilverFast software to scan photos, line art, film negatives, and other printed documents, while getting the highest quality scans possible from your scanner. The course begins with an overview of SilverFast, then takes a task-oriented look at the SilverFast automatic and manual scanning modes, showing numerous scanning projects from start to finish. The course also explores a variety of specialized scanning topics, such as removing color casts and scratches, High Dynamic Range (HDR) scanning, and wet scanning.
Here I'd like to show you a tool that you can use at any time during the scanning process. And this is going to be a particularly useful tool to allow you to review settings that you've already made. Maybe you're halfway through the scanning process in a setup where you just completed a scan like we just have. And you go, "What were the settings that I have?" At any point you can access this tool called Info. All you need to do is click on that tool and it gives you a whole list of all the settings that you've applied to this image. It gives you the name, Tina_RGB_300, the path where you saved it--that's useful--the file format you use, the resolution in pixels per inch, what the width and height of the frame was, the color mode, the depth, everything about this image that you would set.
Remember the color profiles, the working space, the Adobe RGB. So the Info tool is handy, and you can even show the curve that was used to apply to your image. So it's a very handy tool at any point when you want to review the setup that you have assigned to any of your tools or any step along the way in your scanning process. And then you can hide that again and you can click there to close it. So that's using the Info panel to review how you've set up a scan, even after you've completed the scan.
